"Sanctuary" is a word of many meanings, so this WWP topic allows for a lot of different interpretations. I've opted for the "a place offering protection" meaning, or, to be precise, for a place that had a loss of that ability. Hedges and shrubs offer significant safety for smaller animals, but are little more than a nuisance in an industrialized landscape. Here and all around the region, this winter saw quite some hedge thinning activity - the wind sure has it easier now to drive snow across the road. Can't say that I see any advantage in that.

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made
A lot of things can go wrong when doing a last-minute panorama. For example:
you're in a hurry, because you're late for an appointment
you spend too much time on other activities, instead of shooting while the daylight lasts
the location that looked great in daylight is only a black-in-black nothing in the moonlight
the batteries have been too long inside the camera
it's two months since you last did any panorama
The result: you end up with your photos blurred (since you forgot to check the manual focus and it defaults to 2 meters...) and noisy (since you've pushed the camera to ISO 400)... so, the stitched result is non-spectacular, but at least it's something i can offer for this WWP.
Note to self: Plan ahead next time.
